For the last few months I've been watching the musical 2 hours on Antennae TV on Sunday afternoons. The first hour is The Monkees and the second is The Partridge Family.
It really is amazing how very different these shows could be.
The music is timeless, and the guys were decent actors, but the writing for The Monkees was terrible, awful even.
There was such potential if they really did a show about a band. If they would have even done a show that parodied A Hard Day's Night, which was supposed to be what the band was about, it could have been great.
I'm not saying that there weren't good episodes, because there were, especially in the second season. The Devil and Peter Tork and The Christmas Episode, but this was a show that could have been so much more, especially with the talent of the stars
The primary difference is that The Partridge Family didn't try to be a real band, it was David Cassidy.
This show only started a year or so after The Monkees ended, but this show was so much more developed. There are actual stories that make sense, rather than just silly ones.
Sure this show was based on The Cowsills, but they did so much and the show is entertaining, regardless of how you feel about the music.
Which show did you like better?
